No simple yes/no response even from AfriNic ? If you are the one asking the question ?

The annoying part in this business is that AfriNic has many skeletons in their closets; I don't think that Ronald has caught them all, and my personal experience doing business in that part of the world suggests that there will be resistance and more obscurantism in the future.

I don't think it's right to make money leasing IP addresses that were obtained by the millions for a somehow low cost.
I read there were 4 installments, can someone share how much Cloud Innovation has paid so far to AfriNic for these ?
